The goal of Viribus VR Labs is to create new technologies to improve the lives of children with disabilities such as cerebral palsy (CP). We are developing a prototype vest and app to be used as a therapeutic tool that will allow children to practice their therapy at home, with minimal aid.
In short, it is a virtual reality game, but a game that goes far beyond the concept of just playing for the sake of playing. This game engages children with disabilities in a way that encourages them to follow through on their therapy at home. In accomplishing this simple, yet difficult task, studies have shown that children with disabilities like CP will experience an improved quality of life and even avoid painful, invasive surgeries as they age.
